"I did not read this entire book. I may borrow it from the library another time. Some of the reviewers said not to read it too quickly and I agree with them. It is a book to read a bit and then think about for awhile."
"This story takes place during the 17th century in Amsterdam. The story itself touches on many subjects. The secrets in the lives of the people who live together weave through out the story. The costumes are amazing, very elaborate and beautiful. ..."
